Mobile robots are expensive for developing countries and their utilization are general in the field of medicine, from neurosurgery to intensive care units. Our ongoing project "OTOROB" is more specific for orthopedic surgeons with special consideration on its cost effectiveness. Data analysis of our survey, during the first phase helped us to find requirements of orthopaedic surgeons to make it more specific. The new concept of VIrtual Presence (VIP) Specialist Clinics and Roboscope are described. The inevitability & rationalization of the integrated tools are discussed in second phase of our ongoing project. © 2009 IEEE.
